If you’re dreaming of a wedding that combines elegance with a touch of history, Monteverde at Oldstone is a gem you can’t miss. Nestled in the picturesque heart of Hudson Valley, this venue isn’t just a location; it’s an experience, making it a top choice for weddings in the Westchester area.
As seasoned Hudson Valley wedding planners, Rogan & Co. has had the pleasure of bringing numerous weddings to life at the enchanting Monteverde Estate. Stacey Rogan, our visionary owner and lead planner, shares her insider tips and personal affection for this venue.
What sets Monteverde apart is its versatile tented space. It’s like an artist’s blank canvas, ready to be transformed into a bespoke masterpiece for each couple. Our team has honed a perfect mix of vendors who know how to make the most of Monteverde’s unique features.
Picture a sailcloth tent with sweeping views of the Hudson River Valley, where elegance meets creativity. From customized lighting designs to floral masterpieces and one-of-a-kind dance floors, the possibilities are endless. And let’s not forget the bespoke menus complemented by those breathtaking river views.
Monteverde Estate is more than a venue; it’s a piece of Hudson Valley history. This beautifully restored 18th-century estate boasts unparalleled views of the Hudson River. Its charm lies in the details: a century-old grape arbor and a meticulously crafted stone staircase set the scene for a truly romantic celebration.
Each wedding we plan at Monteverde is a reflection of the couple’s unique story. Take, for instance, a recent 250-guest wedding where we broke away from the traditional setup. We mixed elegant farm tables with classic round ones, each adorned with distinctive floral arrangements, custom runners, and chandeliers. The result? A breathtaking “Summer on the Hudson” theme, complete with bespoke lounge areas for cocktail hour and reception.
This summer, we incorporated unique lounge designs for the cocktail hour and reception to give us “Summer on the Hudson.”
Monteverde at Oldstone is perfect for the adventurous couple who dreams of a Hudson Valley destination wedding. Its proximity to New York City, just a 90-minute drive, makes it an accessible yet secluded haven.
To enhance the experience, we recommend opting for larger round tables for comfortable dining and socializing. Monteverde’s exquisite chairs deserve to be showcased, not hidden! And consider a later ceremony time to avoid the midday sun, creating a more comfortable and photogenic setting. One of our unique approaches was hosting the cocktail hour before the ceremony – a hit with guests and a memorable twist on tradition.
